I think we should decide once and for all whether or not we should have Darth Vader for Anakin's article. And if so, which one. Since we usually use latest appearances here, it only makes sense to use Darth Vader, as he was Anakin's latest appearance.--Dooku(Solar Sailer)Huppla Pasa Tisc 00:59, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

  • It's already been decided. It was decided some time ago and since then, time and time again, the current image holds reign over that article. Give it up. Hayden Anakin from ROTS stays. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 01:02, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
    • It doesn't make since to me and appears to go against normal codes, but if it was generally agreed I guess I will calm down a little bit. However, if it goes along for too long of a time, it will become out-dated. After all, people's opinions change over time.--Dooku(Solar Sailer)Huppla Pasa Tisc 01:19, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
      • There is no freakin code or policy. It's whatever looks best. And that Anakin image looks the best. You gave it a month. Give it 6 months and then rechallenge it. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 01:22, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
        • I didn't say there was a code, it is just a general consensus that we use the latest appearances. Otherwise, I could put the ROTS version of Obi-Wan or Yoda instead of their current ones.--Dooku(Solar Sailer)Huppla Pasa Tisc 01:25, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
          • "It doesn't make since to me and appears to go against normal codes" And I will tell you that there is no consensus on latest appearance. It's preferred by most users. That's why Obi-Wan and Yoda use their latest appearance. And thanks to that dumb ass George Lucas and his changes to ROTJ, his ROTS appearance IS the latest appearance. The only difference is that he isn't "transparent" which generally does not look good in infoboxes. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 01:27, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
            • The ROTJ is the cannonically latest appearance. Plus, going on your level of technicallity, Anakin was turned into Vader at the end of ROTS.--Dooku(Solar Sailer)Huppla Pasa Tisc 01:40, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
              • Does this have anything more to achieve? If not, I suggest ending it before it gets out of hand. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 01:41, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
                • The thing it is achieving is this: averting an edit war between me and you (and probably a few others).--Dooku(Solar Sailer)Huppla Pasa Tisc 01:42, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
              • EXACTLY! His latest appearance was as stupid ol Hayden from ROTJ. And being that we don't have any good images of him from then (since he was digitally inserted) we go with the next best thing: an image from when he was alive in E3 as good Anakin. And you all know that anything I get involved in gets out of hand. One of my most lovable traits. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 01:43, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
  • This doesn't look good enough for an infobox?--Dooku(Solar Sailer)Huppla Pasa Tisc 01:47, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
    • First off, I've never liked that image when Anakin and Vader were seperate. Secondly, the best image for an Anakin Skywalker page is to use an image of Anakin Skywalker not Darth Vader. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 01:49, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
      • CountDooku, to be honest, you're only wasting our time, as well as your own. I'm not saying this to be mean. But it's not getting changed. I'm sorry. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 01:53, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Hey guys, heres a suggestion that might help us all that hasnt been said. Why dont you just you two images both beside eachother in the window there with his photo? Wouldn't that work jsut as fine like some other images that have two photos of comic scenes just do that only use real photos of both Anakin's. One be Vader the other be Anakin before he was vader? jediknight2121
    • It has been suggested and various forms of infoboxes have been produced. They are all grotesque. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 04:01, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Well is there anyways we can get Fan art or something really good such as thoses Japenese art from novel covers that is really good art if we can get something like that of Anakin or Vader maybe both would that be a plausible suggestion? --Jediknight2121
    • Why not just bend the anti-doctored image policy just long enough for someone to make a spliced picture? It's very easy. I made this one in under nine minutes. Karohalva 01:02, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Nine minutes of boredom. See how easy it could be?

  • No. We're not using anything like that. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 01:41, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
    • Fair enough. A dual image would be too wide anyhow. Karohalva 02:09, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
      • Might i suggest that we use a picture of Vader without his helmet, as that would be the latest version of him, as both Vader and Anakin. 500px

Perhapse something like this with Luke cropped out?AzureAngel 00:39, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
